Masque of Mandragora introduces the Edwardian Tardis control room, which I always felt was under appreciated. Such a radically altered setting will not be seen again until Paul McGann's movie or the relaunch in 2005. The storyline itself is very interesting as it combines a period piece without actually bringing in the famous people of the time, as the show has been known to do. Reviewer "Mike S." explains the story's premise pretty accurately. But it should also be mentioned that the visual effects were very well done, and the actors all handled their parts beautifully. It feels so authentic that you could scarcely believe they filmed this in modern day Britain. I would have personally liked to know more about the Mandragora Energy and where it came from, but maybe a future episode will revisit it.
this one was alright, not one of my favorites. I do like the new tardis look on the inside, I just wish back then they explained more on why the inside looks different. such as the new series when Doc 10 changes into doc 11 and messes up the tardis, and it repairs itself. overall it was a decent episode.
